    Opinions?

    Decided to try the 4.0 Rear Wing end-plates for fitment with the intent to paint them Guards Red but I am thinking they look pretty good as is. I am a little too close to see the forest for the trees. Your thoughts?

    Hard to tell. I need a picture taken from further away. Then we can see the effect in its entirety.

    Re: Opinions?

    Definitely Red because the wing is black already which reflects nicely in the rims. Looks messy in silver.

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :) 


    Re: Opinions?

    Is the placement of this wing, together with the smaller ducktail below, aerodynamically proven?  I presume the combination isn't standard, so how does one go about deciding whether it's the right thing to do.?yes

    Aesthetically, I think the ducktail would look awesome just on it's own, and unless it was about racing/track aerodynamics (and how much impact that might have vs. losing 20kgs by taking out the aircon that you probably have in there...?!), I'm not so sure...

    I presume it's not (competely) driven by aesthetics - although the colour is, as despite rumours to the contrary, red is no faster than grey!

    Of course if it is mainly aesthetics, then it's purely subjective, and I wouldn't personally have both wings.  Not to say that you don't have a stunningly beautiful car!

     


    Re: Opinions?

    Unless there are additional items in gold on the car, I would certainly paint it red or black.


    Re: Opinions?

    +1 Red or Black but not Silver :)

    Re: Opinions?

    Thank you so much for that, Ferdie. I just took the car out into natural light and came to the same conclusion as most here, that silver is not the best choice. I thought, "Maybe someone would be kind enough to photoshop both red and black for me". Came back to the computer to ask and voilà, you had already done it!

    RED IT IS!


    Re: Opinions?

    You´re welcome mate! You´ve got a stunning car, great to be of help to make it look good... indecision

    Re: Opinions?

    Now you have to make the roof and the hood black too...... - just kidding ! Looks great - very integrated !


    Re: Opinions?

    Stunning car!  The RS looks so much better without all those silly decals (and the red end-plates were definitely the right way to go).  Smiley


    Re: Opinions?


    Thanks. The mirrors are actually carbon, to match the rear wing.

    Re: Opinions?

    Simply awesome. Apart from Pilot´s car, there won´t be many GT3s around that look more stunning than these. Glad to be of help!

    kiss


    Re: Opinions?

    Love those carbon mirrors. The red black combo looks perfect on the GT3. kiss
